Lyrics

Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining;
God lives, and all is well.

(Refrain)
Somewhere,
Somewhere,
Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!
Land of the true, where we live anew
Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!

Men's Voices
Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining;
God lives, lives and all is well.
(to Refrain)

Somewhere the day is longer,
Somewhere the task is done;
Somewhere the heart is stronger,
Somewhere the guer donwon
(to Refrain)

Somewhere the load is lifted,
Close by an open gate;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,
Somewhere the angles wait.
(to Refrain)

Women's Voices

Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining;
God lives, lives and all is well.
(to Refrain)

Somewhere the day is longer,
Somewhere the task is done;
Somewhere the heart is stronger,
Somewhere the guer donwon
(to Refrain)

Somewhere the load is lifted,
Close by an open gate;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,
Somewhere the angles wait.
(to Refrain)
